Dark, sinister and fun -- these words describe this wonderfully inventive piece that paints a picture of shadows marching in unison through hallways, dark corners, and anywhere else the imagination would like to go. Designed to introduce students to Eb and Bb in a simple setting, the work makes wonderful use of mild dissonance as the shadows come to life. Clever!
